Update Feb. 2023: The creators of this website have all finished their projects at the university and moved on by now. We are keeping the site online but there won’t be any updates any more.

Some of the projects are continued on uav-flightresearch.com.

Welcome to the unofficial web-pages of the UAV lab at The University of Sydney. We are a group of researchers working on all kinds of little planes to advance the knowledge in this very special field. These pages present some of our work, tips and tricks, experiences and mishaps and a bit of fun. We also share modifications and hacks to the standard flight control codes that we do for our research to implement new features or to improve on existing capabilities. Last but not least, there are lots of pictures of our vehicles and flight test excursions.

So we want to take the opportunity to share some of the material here.
